Yeah, that's *me* alright. Not comfortable with auto dial-out, especially
when this machine is also connected to the local amateur radio network. :-)

While its easy enough to prevent auto dial-out with my external modem
simply by turning it off, I still use pppd, and connect up manually
with kermit. Still type "atdt 555-xxxx" also.
